Visited on a Friday night. Place was packed so figured had to be good! Ordered Bacon Cheeseburger and fries as usual at burger places. Was disappointed in the taste. Didn't read reviews before going. Guess everyone has different likes because I'm not a fan of In-N-Out either.

We stopped in on a busy weekend afternoon and were a little worried about the chaotic line to order - but so glad we toughed it out.

Great little burger joint. Burgers were excellent and chili cheese fries too. Milkshake was nothing special. Ordering area was small and confusing and crowded, but the place was busy. Nice outside seating available. Would recommend and visit again.

This is a great burger joint! The burgers are flavorful. I haven't tried their chicken, but I'm sure it's awesome! My favorite side is their sweet potato chips and special dipping sauce! You've gotta try it! It is on the pricier side for fast food. But it's worth every penny!

Thank ctcp2016
